The carbon fiber Solo Jib Kit with Tripod and Slider Dolly from VariZoom is a complete dolly and jib system for adding fluid pan, tilt, tracking, and jib shots to your videos. The kit features the carbon fiber Solo Jib, Solo Slider Dolly, and VZ-TK75A Aluminum Tripod System. The entire dolly/tripod/jib system can be setup by one person without any extra tools, and breaks down to fit into three cases for easy transport.
The Solo Jib is supported using the VZ-TK75A tripod system, which features a 65/75mm compatible bowl. For use without the jib, the tripod includes a fluid video head with quick-release plate, which supports loads up to 10 pounds. Additional features include a mid-level spreader, telescoping pan handle, and switchable rubber/spiked feet. A padded carrying case is included.
The dolly track consists of five segments for 16' of total track yielding a travel distance of 13.5'. For use on a variety of surfaces, a set of foam-padded pieces are included to go underneath the track. The VZ-TK75A tripod runs on the dolly track using the adjustable dolly, which features specially designed wheels for smooth and silent operation. The dolly and track can be set up quickly and breaks down to fit into a custom carrying case for a total weight of only 26 pounds.
The VariZoom Solo Jib is a portable, lightweight aluminum jib with a 2-stage telescoping arm that provides up to 4.2' of reach yet fits into a compact case only 38" long. The Solo Jib works with 65mm bowls, 75mm bowls, or flat bases with 3/8" stud, making it compatible with most tripods. It features soft-stop pan and tilt brakes for fixing the position of the jib without it tipping over, as well as a telescoping tail for counterweight adjustment. The Solo Jib can be set up quickly and easily without the need for any additional tools. Included with the jib is a mounting stud and hand knob for 65mm and 75mm bowl tripods, a 5.5 pound counterweight, a bar fitting and nut/spacers for mounting the counterweight, and a carrying bag.
The VariZoom Solo Slider Dolly combines the benefits of a track dolly with the portability and flexibility of a slider system. It can accommodate nearly any tripod from heavy-duty 100mm bowl units down to mini tripods or hi-hats. The track consists of five segments for 16 feet of total track. The 16 feet of track yield a travel distance of 13.5 feet. For use on a variety of surfaces, a set of foam underpadding pieces are included to go underneath the track.
Your tripod is supported using the folding dolly. The dolly accepts tripods with rubber feet or claw feet, using the included claw-foot adapters. Adjustable tripod mount brackets let you run the unit inches off the ground or a table top with a mini tripod or hi-hat for slider-like operation. The dolly also supports larger tripods with jib arms, such as the VariZoom Solo Jib. Specially designed wheels provide smooth and silent operation. The entire system can be set up quickly and breaks down to fit into a custom carrying case for a total weight of only 26 pounds.
The VariZoom VZ-TK75A is a tripod system with a carry case. This is a tripod and head featuring a 65mm bowl and offering a mid-level spreader and rubber feet. The lightweight VZ-TK75A was designed to work with mid-size camcorders up to 10 lbs.
